East Kazakhstan region - the history of the land.

The territory of the East Kazakhstan region has been inhabited since ancient times. According to him, in Altai, in the basin of the Zaisan River, on the Tarbagatai and Sauyr ridges, there are traces of ancient mines, irrigation systems, fortifications and settlements. At the beginning of the 15th century, after the upper reaches of the Irtysh basin were occupied by the Oirats, this place became part of the Dzungar Khanate. 1758 After the destruction of the Dzungar Khanate by Chinese troops, the Kalmyks moved to the other bank of the Volga. The Kazakh tribes, driven out by the Kalmyks and mainly inhabiting Saryarka, returned to their ancient settlements. At the beginning of the 18th century, tsarist Russia built a network of Irtysh fortifications on the territory of the modern region, expelling the Kazakhs from their homeland in order to deepen the colonization of the Kazakh lands. Gradually, a system of fortifications and outposts was built on this line, and later Cossack-Russian villages were built (Semipalatinsk in 1718, Ust-Kamenogorsk in 1720, Bukhtarma in 1763). Cossack-Russian settlements appeared on the right bank of the Irtysh and its branches. Ten kilometers of fertile lands on both sides of the Irtysh River ("Irtysh Ten-Stane Strip") were taken from the Kazakhs and transferred to the use of the Russian Cossacks. That is, the Kazakhs were forbidden to settle closer than 10 km from the Irtysh River. The Kazakhs lost their most fertile lands, lost the names of their ancestral settlements and were replaced by Russian names preserved on the pages of the map. All tributaries, ravines and rivers flowing into the Irtysh are named in Russian. The villages gradually moved south and southwest. 1826 Kokpekty fortress at the foot of the Kalbinsky ridge, 1831 On the right bank of the Ayagoz river, not far from the modern Ayagoz city, the Sergiopol fortress, a village arose along the Shaueshek road.
